As as part of the Financial Times  recently announced “digital first,” the London-based, global paper is expanding its digital staff, introducing a new real-time feature on market-moving news called Fast FT and building social tools for its audiences, says Martin Dickson, Managing Editor for the U.S. in this interview with Beet.TV

Video, he says is essential for the site and the FT’s approach is to leverage reporters’ access to influencers to creating unique interviews.

We spoke yesterday as the venerable newspaper celebrated its 125 year anniversary.
